Make music, move and wiggle in our lively new sessions for pre-walking and toddling children.  

Guided by an experienced facilitator and artist, each session will feature a mix of music, storytelling, sensory play and movement to enable you and your little one to interact and have fun in a relaxed environment.   

These events have been designed to support early years skills development in social interaction and communication as well as nurture curiosity and creativity.   

Our June and July sessions will be led by musician, theatre maker and puppeteer Jenny Lockyer who has over twenty years of experience working with young children as a play leader, teaching assistant and sensory arts facilitator in schools, children’s centres and play schemes. She combines music, song and play in her workshops. Alongside her experience with early years Jenny also leads drama and arts experiences for children and young people across the South East, performs comedy and music, and takes on various creative commissions. Throughout lockdown Jenny has been running online music sessions with young children and can’t wait to get back to in person sessions again.
